Tower 15, 2019 Chenin Blanc
To make this wine we sourced sustainably farmed Chenin Blanc from Jurassic Park Vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley. The vineyard is situated on rolling hills at an elevation of about 1,100 feet. Planted in 1982, and named Jurassic Park after the large dinosaur-like oil wells scattered around it, these are relatively old vines for the area. The grapes were harvested on October 2nd, 2019 at 19 brix with a pH of 3.33. The grapes were immediately pressed and underwent a long, cold fermentation in neutral French oak barrels with daily battonage by hand during fermentation. Aged for four months in neutral French oak barrels prior to bottling.
